Know your skin

Sixty percent of people in the UK currently have a skin condition or have previously had a skin condition.

There are at least 100,000 new cases of skin cancer reported every year in the UK. 20% of all children have eczema. 70% of British people with skin conditions or scars say it affects their confidence.

These shocking statistics highlight why we are on a mission to fund research into all types of skin diseases, including skin cancer. We want to help find cures and treatments to improve the quality of life for those people with skin conditions and their families.

Support our science and help us fund more research. We won’t stop until our researchers have found cures and treatments for common diseases like eczema, psoriasis and acne, through to potential killers like malignant melanoma.

The British Skin Foundation receives no statutory funding and relies completely on donations.
